Where Have All the Cowboys Gone

Paula Cole

Oh you get me ready in your 56 Chevy 
Why don’t we go sit down in the shade 
Take shelter on my front porch 
The dandy lion sun scorching
Like a glass of cold lemonade 
I will do the laundry 
If you pay all the bills

Where is my John Wayne 
Where is my prairie song 
Where is my happy ending 
Where have all the cowboys gone

Why don’t you stay the evening 
Kick back and watch the TV 
And I’ll fix a little something to eat 
Oh I know your back hurts from working on the tractor 
How do you take your coffee my sweet 
I will raise the children 
If you pay all the bills

Where is my John Wayne 
Where is my prairie song 
Where is my happy ending 
Where have all the cowboys gone

I am wearing my new dress tonight 
But you don’t, but you don’t even notice me
Say goodbyes 
Say goodbyes 
Say goodbyesWe finally sell the Chevy 
When we had another baby 
And you took the job in Tennessee 
You made friends at the farm 
And you joined them at the bar 
Almost every single day of the weekI will wash the dishes 
While you go have a beer 
Where is my John Wayne 
Where is my prairie song 
Where is my happy ending 
Where have all the cowboys goneWhere is my Marlboro man 
Where is his shiny gun 
Where is my lonely ranger 
Where have all the cowboys gone 
Where have all the cowboys gone 
Where have all the cowboys gone

Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
Yippee yo, yippee yeah
